Love life and husband
Tori prefers to keep the details of her love life to herself, which is why not a lot is known about her marriage with Mitch Myers. The two met in 2010 at a party organized by a mutual friend, and were introduced by the friend who believed that they’d be perfect for each other.
Mitch, a talented graphics designer and digital creator, asked Tori out on a date only a couple of days later, and they went on to date for eight years before marrying in a private ceremony attended by their closest friends and family in December 2018. It appears that the two have decided not to have children so that they could both focus on their careers.
Neither Tori nor Mitch have talked about any other people they had perhaps dated before meeting each other, so as of February 2021, Tori is married to Mitch Myers and they don’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Tori is highly religious and goes to church at least once a week. Her husband is also quite religious, and this is one of the things that attracted her to him.

She is a lover of animals, and has a pet dog which can be seen featured in some of her Instagram pictures.
Tori is physically very active, and has several training sessions at the gym each week, while she also goes running in a park close to her home most morning.
In her spare time which is usually late at night, Tori enjoys watching movies starring her favorite actor and actress Ryan Gosling and Amanda Seyfried, such as “The Notebook”, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Letters to Juliette”.
